Devs Talk Post KickStarter Direction

Devs Talk Post KickStarter Direction - The Exiled - MMORPG.com

While the Das Tal KickStarter has wrapped up without reaching its funding goal, the team is not ready to give up just yet. Head of Communications David Wells has posted some post-KickStarter thoughts for fans of the game.

Post Kickstarter Thoughts

Our Kickstarter has come to an end, and at closing we reached just under 33k. Not the 50k we aimed for, so things have obviously not turned out as well as they could. I am happy to say that the majority of people have come to us with questions and genuine advice, rather than negative comments. The amount of people who were asking about what would happen to Das Tal actually gave me a really good vibe in the middle of the whole situation.

To answer that question, Das Tal will continue with development. That is the simplest way to put it. The Kickstarter was never our one and only path, and we would not have kicked it off so early if we were risking everything. We plan to jump straight back into a development push that will see the game improve at a faster rate than it was even during Kickstarter, as we had basically all team members doing at least a little publicity work.

The first step is to take a look at the feedback ou?r? community has given us, as well as the feelings we have picked up from discussions out on news sites and other discussion forums like Reddit. We need to restructure how we communicate our game to the public. Having people say they are surprised how much they like the game once they try it is nice, but we need to figure out how we can make more people excited to try it in the first place. This is going to be a big focus for us over the next couple of months.

The other part is obviously taking the feedback we received about the game itself. We had 4 tests over this month, which is actually quite a lot considering how much else we had on our plate. From tests we take note of what everyone thinks of all the core features, as well as minor gripes. So we have a lot of feedback there also, and will discuss what needs to be done and get right into it.

Thank you so much to everyone who supported us. Whether it was financially, through media coverage of what is still a small indie project, by spreading the word, or by coming along to one of our tests. It means a lot to us, and we will keep working hard on creating an awesome game.
